    Hey. I have build a Hackintosh som months ago, but I would really like to install Windows on another harddisk, and be able to boot from that one. But I've stumbled upon some problems.
    I've been using my laptop to make a bootable usb with the Windows iso, following this guide:

    But when I'm trying to boot from the usb, and the partition on the usb (through my motherboards boot menu), I either just gets the message that i need to insert a bootable device, or I just gets send back to the motherboard boot menu.
    It's probably something with the motherboard configuration..?
    I'm new in this, so does anyone of you, have an idea for a solution?

    This is my build:
    Gigabyte GA-Z270X-Ultra Gaming
    Intel Core i7 6700K - 4 GHz - 4 cores
    Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1050 Ti G1 Gaming
    Ballistix Sport LT 4 x 8 GB (32GB)

    There is a whole section here on these forums dealing with booting Windows. Look here: multi-booting.153
